    "Tim Grace" asks:

    Does the SCOTUS campaign finance rulling open the door for single-issue driven third party/independent candidates?

    Tim also asks whether Scott Brown drove the truck down to DC; the answer is no, but he did wear the barn jacket. Don't know whether John Kerry wore his from the 2004 campaign when they met up.

    "John" asks:

    What is Boston City Councilor Stephen Murrphy going to do? Is he in for Treasurer, Auditor, or nothing?

    I think he's looking at Treasurer, especially with Joe Connolly dropping out due to health reasons. My guess is he does not ultimately pull the trigger.

    Lots of questions already piling up for Ask Me Anything Day! "DC Observer" asks:

    Who are the early Democratic frontrunners to challenge Brown in 2012? Do you see a member of the Cong. Delegation? A former member like Meehan? Someone from state politics? Private sector?

    I think that Meehan is very likely. A congressman would have to give up his seat to run, which seems unlikely unless the GOP really does take over the majority in the House (and looks likely to keep it after 2012), although a couple would be sorely tempted.

    "Boston Bertie" asks:

    Is Martha Coakley vulnerable for re-election for AG after her absolutely horrendous campaign for the US Senate. Democratic activists that I talk to are raging with her for losing Teddy's seat and all say they will never vote for her again - for anything.

    I see Bill Keating's web site for AG hasn't come down.

    Brightening the gloom of your winter, it's the pageantry and hoopla of Ask Me Anything Day on the Talking Politics blog!

    (Note to self: ask art department to whip up an Ask Me Anything Day graphic. Something this important deserves its own graphic.)

    There's certainly plenty going on these days: Gov. Patrick's State of the Commonwealth address; the teetering national health care bill; a special state senate election in Cambridge & environs; the fast-approaching 2010 national and state elections; the start of the 2012 GOP Presidential cycle; .

    "Joe" asks, via email:

    Any chance that Steve Pagliuca, despite his last place finish in the Senate primary, might be tempted to jump into the Democratic race for Governor. Deval looks vulnerable, to say the least, and money is clearly not an issue for Steve.
    No chance, according to people close to Pags I've spoken to about it.

    "Anonymous" asks:

    In 2010 elections, are all state senators up for reelection or just half of them?

    And "Shady_Milkman" asks, via Twitter:

    Will there be any competitive races against incumbents for Staterep/senate this year?

    All 40 Massachusetts state senators -- and all 160 state reps -- are up for re-election every two years.
